SATURDAY. AUGUST 7, 1880.
WHEN THE LEGISLATURE MEETS.
The Legislature, after two weeks'
vacation, resumes business next
Monday. It is to be hoped that tho
recess will prove to have been help
ful to the woik of the session, and
that the temporary delay will really
have been the means of advancing
tho public business. An oppor
tunity has been afforded for advan
cing backward committee work, and
all matters' referred to committees
should be in readiness for presenta
tion at the re-assembling of the
House. The new Ministers have
had time to familiarize themselves
somewhat with the routine and
requirements of their respective
departments, and for conferring
together and crystalling their
policy, for the ministerial organ
intimates that they really have a
policy. They should be prepared
with their measures, bring them
boldly forward, and stand or fall by
them. Refuge ma' be taken, and
with some show of reason, in the
excuse that the session is now too
far advanced for the introduction of
new measures. But this is largely
neutralized b' the fact that what is
not done now will have to remain
undone for two years longer. One
thing the Government certainly
should be prepared to do, and that
is to lead the House themselves., in
stead of delegating that function to
private members. By so doing
much valuable time can be given to
tiseful work that will otherwise be
wasted in desultory and fruitless
talk. The Government ought to be
able to control their own party,
which is a majority of the House.
Judging by the past, the Opposi- !
tion will be ready to support the
Government in all measures that
are for the country's good. "We
say judging by the past, because
the Fire Limits, Street Grading,
and other useful bills Government
measures were assisted by the
Opposition. It is all empty balder
dash to say that those men stand in
the way of progress and obstruct
legislation that is in the interest of
the country. They certainly have
'entered a vigorous protest and taken
a bold stand against admitting to
the membership of the House men
illegally elected, the granting of
money for a specified object without
the previous vote for the same pur
pose being accounted for, the appro
priating of money for objects that
are of no benefit to the country
whatever, and against a slip-shod
tax bill that showed injustice on its
face. In this they have done their
duty, and their country owes them
a debt of gratitude. When the
future historian writes the history of
the present times the names of those
mei! will bo mentioned with admira
tion. That they have committed no
errors and made no mistakes, no
one preteuds to bay. But their
general course is approved by tho
intelligence of the country, from tho
nethermost 'end of Hawaii to the
farthest point of Niiliati. How ridi
culous to talk of the Opposition as
obstructionists to the country's
interests, when they represent the
bulk of its wealth! It is too absurd
for any sensible man to swallow.
What injures the country injures
tho Opposition, and what benefits
the country benefits the Opposition.
And to them cither the injury or the
benefit is greater than to the party
in majority in the Legislature, be
cause they have greater interests
involved. Having much nt stake,
they desire tho welfare of tho .coun
try, and that poition of the Legisla
tive body which represents this
party con always bo relied upon to
support tho wise and oppose, tho
foolish measures of tho Govern
ment. The peoplo at largo probably care
but little as to which paity is in
the majority, or as to who are the
persons forming the Administration,
po Jong as legislation is wise and
si. J-.v r u ;
beneficial, and the government con
ducted in the interests of tho coun
try. What they wnnt is wholesome
legislation, good government, judi
cious nppropi iation of their taxes,
nnd it fair and pioper expenditure
of tho public funds. Let them linvo
these, and tlicy arc contented and
happy. Without them there will be
dissatisfaction and agitation, which
will continue until they get their
wish, and in the end thuy arc bound
to gut it whatever obstacles oppose
THE CIVIL SERVICE.
L'lllciency in tho civil service of
any country is one of the most im
portant factors in its prospciity.
Whatever tho relations of a govern
ment may be with foreign powers,
its lelations with the people at homo
ought to be such as to inspire mutual
satisfaction and confidence. "A
house divided against itself cannot
stand," is a statement of hoi' writ,
to thu truth of which the experience
of the centuries "fully responds.
And an ill-conducted civil service
is invariably fertile of discontent
among tho people, while :i civil ser
vice managed on correct principles
conduces to the stability of govern
ment and popular respect for the
laws. These facts have, for many
years, been forcing themselves upon
the attention of both British and
American statesmen, and consider
able progress has been made in plac
ing the civil service upon a sound
basis. Old abuses, nepotism, pur
chased commissions and political
favoritism, are being giadually re
moved. The doctrine that " to the
victors belong the spoils " of ofllcc,
by the increasing intelligence and
good sense of the people, has, at
least theoretically, been pretty well
exploded. The new doctrines re
cognize fitness for duty as an essen
tial qualification for participating in
" tho spoils." It is also pretty
generally held that the light dis
charge of the duties of any olllce
should ensure to the incumbent a
permanency in his situation, inde
pendent of the varying fortunes of
mere political parties. The third
article Qf the new creed is that can
didates for the civil service must
begin at the foot, not at the top of
the ladder, and secure promotion
by deserving it.
To the credit of the founders of
the Hawaiian constitution and polity,
it must be said that in tho practical
application of the sound principles
referred to above, this kingdom took
a stand far in advance of those
communities from who'm it was re
ceiving its first lessons in political
science. The affairs of stale as
well as matters of local intei est were
placed in charge of the, most com
petent persons available for carry
ing out an enlightened and progres
sive policy. Of late, however, a
change has come over the spirit of
tho bcenc. Statesmanship has de
generated into mere political wire
pulling. Persons have been hoisted
on to the top rounds of the ladder
in certain departments, who, if ad
vancement had been contingent upon
anything else than petty favoritism,
would never have reached the
second. During the past few
months, a series of appointments
have been made which' can be ac
counted for on no sound principles
whatever. Soon after the results of
the February elections were known,
rumors began to fill the air, of pros
pective decapitations. Several of
these rumors have been verified. In
no case lias an appointment been
made on the basis of fitness acquired
by previous cxperienco, with meri
torious public service of any kind.
Even Cabinet Ministers have been
displaced for no specific reasons on
which either the public or even the
Legislative Assemblj' have ever
been enlightened. A new cabinet
has been installed, the members of
wiiich arc unable to consult to
'gether, except through an interpre
ter, and two of the members of which
are not competent to hold communi
cation with nine-tenths of the elec
tors of the kingdom. A gentleman
of thorough acquaintance with every
detail of the postal depaitment, nnd
besides of sterling integrity of
chai actor, was superseded by an
olliccr who knew probably a little
more about the duties of his depart-
ment than ho knew about the man-
nrVmnrmt nt thn Rritkh iinvv Thin
agementor tne.nrit.6nmn. inis
official, again, has been succeeded
by another gentleman of liko per
fect innocence of any knowledge of
tho functions of the postmastership,
and whoso only possiblo .qualifica
tion is that being a gentleman of
good abilities, ho may, by the time
ho has drawn a twelve-month's
salary, bo fairly initiated into nn
s , i'Ji...W2:u
acquaintanco with tho working of
tho postal service. Mr. Kaulukou's
elevation to tho Marshalship, after
his former experience as Sheriff of
Hawaii, possesses the merit of being
nn appointment for which the olliccr
is doubtless qualified by previous
acquaintance with duties of a simi
lar character, but which cannot be
defended oh the ground of his ser
vices, cither in the capacity of
sheriff, or in any other capacity,
having been such as to recommend
his promotion to a higher sphere of
duty. The direct effect of the ap
pointments referred to nre telling
with pernicious effect upon the con
fidence which the public ought to
feel in tho stability of the Govern
ment and the integrity of its mem
bers. Indirectly, they reflect dis
credit upon the nation abroad. The
foreign press has already noticed
them in no complimentary terms.
With a cabinet half of whose mem
bers were citizens of the country a
few hours before their commissions
as Ministers of State were signed,
and with a batch of public ollicers
placed on the topmost lounds of the
civil service ladder to learn what
their duties are ; this kingdom lias
little to expect from foreign coun
tries but to be made a butt for the
jeers and ridicule of every news
paper from John O'Groat's House
to the Golden Gate.
The ex-Attorney-General had a
bill before the house to license
pawn-broking. It is to be hoped
that now its author is out of olllce
the bill will not 15c allowed to drop.
The measure is concise, clear, and
to the point, and seems to be pre
cisely what is needed. Anyhow, it
is a decided improvement on the
lack of law upon this matter that
now exists. Pawn-broking, although
not recognized by the statutes, is
done somewhat extensively in this
town, and done, too, in a way that
reflects dishonor on the brokers. If
we arc correctly informed, and our
informants arc persons who have
been victimized, the rate of interest
charged on temporary loans secured
by personal property is something
enormous reaching in some cases
so high as one hundred percent per
mouth. One instance has been re
lated of a man who pledged a gold
watch, worth $250, as security for a
temporary loan of $100, for which
the borrower was to pay a high rate
of interest, that the holder of the
watch refused to give it up when
called for, because the time agreed
upon had been slightly exceeded,
preferring the $250 watch to the
$100 cash with the stipulated in
terest added. The bill referred to
guards against such practices, and
it should become law for the pro
tection of poor unfortunates and
the punishment of unprincipled
